Re:Integrated Camera on P51 not working (turns on and off continuoulsy)

2020-05-03, 19:22 PM

Quick follow up to my original post.  I was able to find a solution on another site that solved my issue.  Please see the below link.




Although it is for a T470p model, it followed the same symptoms of my issue and I confirmed the resolution worked for me.  Admittedly, I am not 100% understanding what the actual cause of the issue is, but if you scroll to the bottom, the registry changes they describe fixed my issue right away.  


Also, to be clear, I found that my issue was seemingly not a camera issue, but a windows conflict as I ran into the same issue when hooking up a USB  camera as well.


Anyway, I wanted to forward on the information.  Hopefully it can help you out (especially during this lockdown).

So, is seems some folks have gotten their camera's to work and still others who have had no joy.  

I am still looking for an option, a tech who can help or a work around.  Any body have any ideas?
